Intramolecular H-bonds existing for derivatives of 3-aminopropenethial have been studied using the B3LYP/6-311+ +G** level of theory. The nature of these interactions, known as resonance assisted hydrogen bonds, has been discussed. The topological properties of the electron density distributions for N-H-S intramolecular bridges have been analyzed in terms of the Bader theory of atoms in molecules. Correlations between the H-bond strength and topological parameters have been also studied. Furthermore, we obtained the exact value of the intramolecular hydrogen bond energies by the related rotamers method.
